Dance and


with Simone


in leiden,


Who are the workshops for?

Simone offers dance and movement workshops focussed on exploring and experiencing yourself within dance. The workshops are suitable for everyone, with or without dance experience. You are welcome! Workshops will be in Dutch, English is possible on request. 

What to expect?

This spring the general theme of all workshops is ‘exploring connection’. Connecting with your body, yourself, others and exploring and expanding your own movement vocabulary. We start every workshop with a warming up, followed by guided forms of dance and movement. In the workshop, I’ll offer the framework, in which you’re free to explore and follow your own impulses and movements. You can follow the whole set of workshops. As the workshops stand on their own, you’re also able to join them separately. 

If you’re interested to be informed about the content of upcoming workshops, please send an email to and I’ll add you to the mailing list.

Dance and Movement with

Simone Willems

Dance and movement: a way to explore, express and develop. With awareness and playfulness. These are key components of what dance and movement mean to me. It helped me transform my childhood insecurities, blocked feelings, and emotions and gave me a feeling of safety and connection within myself. And it keeps on giving me tremendous joy!

In 2014 I graduated as a Dance and Movement therapist. In the years after I’ve traveled and worked in several mental health organizations with both individual and group therapy treatments. I experienced that working with movement goes beyond words and belief systems we’ve about ourselves and others. It is a direct way to experience the present moment. Connecting with Sacred Trees Studio gives me the possibility to share my experiences, passion, and joy with others. Please feel welcome, let’s dance!
